Signed the guy for 3yr/25.5mil, he is going to have a cap hit of 10mil in 2017. That makes him about the 8th highest paid 3-4OLB according to Over the Cap.
His most productive seasons so far has seen him get a 8.5 sacks in his first year, and 8 sacks two years ago from the Pats.
I think the contract is a bit inflated to be honest, we are paying the guy double digit sack to type money, something he has yet to do.
That said I watched him closely in SB51 and I thought he was very disruptive off the edge. He only got half a sack, but he had another one, only for him to lose his grip of Matt Ryan from his momentum around the edge. He is big and physical and a good 3-4 OLB fit for us. He is going to start and be on the field for alot of snaps, so I think he will just about break the 10 sack mark this year. I also expect himself and Simon to set a solid edge for us this year.
Long term though, I see the Colts drafting an OLB in rounds 1 or 2 next year, with who ever that player is, rotating with Sheard and Basham.
